More About Coach Erika

Most recently I have run Skills & Drills workshops for small groups and coached athletes one on one or one on two. In the past I worked at the girls basketball camp in Hopkinton for summers of 1999 to 2006. During that time I also organized a night camp where I was responsible for hiring staff and setting up drills, competitions, and games for 6, 7, and 8th grade boys and girls.

I am CPR certified.

I was a member of the girls basketball state championship team at Hopkinton High School where I was team captain my senior year, earned League All Star honors, and finished my career as the school’s second-leading career rebounder. I went on to play 4 years varsity basketball at Ithaca College and was a starter my junior and senior years. I was a Two-Time Ithaca College Athlete of the Week, Empire 8 All-Conference Second Team All Star, Two-Time Empire 8 Player of the Week, ECAC Player of the Week, and Empire 8 All-Conference First Team All Star. I was also elected to the All Ithacan Team and as a D3Hoops.com East Region All-Star Team First Team.

**I have indoor facilities available at an additional cost** It's too hard for me to say what a typical session with me would be because every athlete is different and needs to be seen that way. Some kids need more of a confidence boost so starting off with fun drills that will loosen then up and get comfortable with me are important. Once I get that trust I can push them a little more and challenge them so they can develop their skills while gaining the mental strength that every athlete should value on the same level as physical talent. Others need to be pushed a little more and there rapport is equally as important. I don't want it to be a cake walk otherwise they won't take the session seriously because they will feel they are better than that. With any kid, the goal is also weighed into my plan. Some kids want to get in shape for their school's try out so a lot of cardio drills with the ball are incorporated. Others just want to learn how to make a lay up. Even more just need a role model to look up to. By being able to read each athlete and see them as individuals, I am able to cater my work out to them and create an environment where they will be most successful and hone their basketball skills while having fun.

Coach Erika has helped our daughter improve her skills.

We signed up with Coach Erika for a few lessons to tighten our daughter's skills before basketball tryouts. Erika is a wonderful coach who not only has improved our daughter's skills but has boosted her confidence. Our daughter is in great shape for tryouts and has asked to continue with Coach Erika so that she can get even better. Can't ask for more than that!

Great drills and encouragement from the coach. My daughter appreciated the opportunity to work with her.

After only 2 sessions, I’ve already seen aspects of my daughter’s game improve based on what they’ve reviewed and practices during their sessions! Awesome!

As a family, we have had an absolute fantastic experience with Erika. Our 11-year-old daughter has learned so much this summer and it’s fun to see her want to apply it in her team practices and games. She looks forward to her sessions with Erika as much as she does her team! We expected Erika to be very knowledgeable and a good teacher of the game. What we were especially happy to see was how she incorporated age-appropriate creativity, motivation and enthusiasm. Our daughter has enjoyed every moment with Erika and we recommend her with confidence! Thank you!

Coach Erika has been great to work with. My daughter has loved her sessions with her. She is a very positive role model!

Coach Erika is terrific! She is very upbeat and great to practice with so I can feel more confident and improve my basketball skills. I am so glad I have a Coach Up Elite program with her so she can give me help with my game all summer.

Coach Erika has been great with my daughter. She is well prepared each session with appropriate drills and session plans that have helped my daughter improve her basketball skills, particularly her shooting, noticeably in a short period of time. She is very personable and my daughter, who can be shy, enjoys working with her.

Top notch coach!!! My daughter loved the training and will continue.

Erika was a great fit for my 14 yr old daughter. Her energy and experience was a perfect match for my daughter. We look forward to the next sessions.

Erika brings great energy, personality and humor to each session and has a knack for making "no nonsense" fun and motivating. Aside from the great variety of drills and coaching ability, I see Erika as a great role model for my daughter.

Coach Erika has been coaching my daughter for a few months now. She is absolutely fantastic at interacting with young people. My daughter, who has advanced skills for her age, hasn't had too many coaches that she has really connected with, but she immediately connected with Erika. Erika's knowledge of basketball is extensive, but more important is her ability to communicate that knowledge as a coach. She describes skills and concepts that are understandable to the player and she is extremely encouraging and positive. Erika comes prepared to every session with a list of drills and lessons based on my feedback as well as her own assessment of my daughter's skills. My daughter needed help with skills such as proper footwork and defensive positioning. I have been impressed with her progress and will continue to use Erika's coaching service. Bottom line...we are extremely pleased with Erika and confidently recommend her for any skill level.

Erika was a great coach and training partner... she was able to help me work on my low post skills and gave me drills to help me cont to develop... I am looking forward to our next session. Annie (age 13)

My daughter loved Coach Erika! Her teaching ability is incredible. I can already see that my daughters confidence is increasing and I cant wait to see whats to come. I would recommend Coach Erika to anyone!!!!
